Description

Red velvet cake pops decorated with red candy melts, Swedish fish, and sprinkles to look like crab.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Red Velvet Cake (From A Boxed Mix, Or Your Favorite Recipe)
  • 1 can (16 Oz. Size) Cream Cheese Frosting (Or Made Fresh)
  • 200 pieces Swedish Fish, For Claws
  • 1 pound Red Chocolate Candy Melts
  • 300 pieces Sugar Lips Sprinkles
  • 100 pieces Sugar Eyes

Preparation

Note: You will also need 50 sticks for making candy or lollipops. This recipe makes 50 cake pops.

1. Bake the red velvet cake per box instructions or per your favorite recipe. After cake is cooled completely, crumble the red velvet cake into a large bowl. Mix in the cream cheese frosting with the red velvet crumbs. Roll into 50 balls and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Place the tray into the freezer for 15 minutes.

2. While you wait, use a scalloped cookie cutter to cut off a corner of each Swedish fish so that they look like a claw.

3. Melt the red chocolate in a double boiler. Remove tray from the freezer. Dip the tip of each lollipop stick in a little of the melted chocolate and insert a little less than halfway into the cake balls. Return to the freezer for 5 minutes.

4. Dip each cake pop into the melted red candy, and rotate to cover completely. Rotate or tap very softly until the excess chocolate drips off. Insert 3 upside down sugar lips sprinkles on each side of the pop, 2 eyes on top, and 2 Swedish Fish claws on each side. Stick the pop into a styrofoam block to let dry.
